Photographer Alan Karchmer has risen to prominence in his field thanks to his skill in conveying the ideas and intentions of architects. Having earned a Master of Architecture himself, Karchmer uses his knowledge of the design process, coupled with his own artistic vision, to express the essence of a building. In this live online event, Karchmer will guide viewers through the Museum's exhibition of his work: Alan Karchmer: The Architect's Photographer. This exhibition will be available to visitors when the Museum reopens in 2021.
The exhibition is generously supported by the Anne and Ronald Abramson Family Foundation, The American Institute of Architects, David Crane and Jeffrey Wells, Edward J. Lenkin and Roselin Atzwanger, VMDO Architects, Chris Morrison FAIA and Dr. Michael Olding, SmithGroup, Jessica and Henry Townsend, Barbara and Herb Franklin, and Leers Weinzapfel Associates.
